A former Student Government staffer is asking President Judy Genshaft to reconsider a Sept. 2 decision that prohibits daytime alcohol sales on campus.
Senior business major James Callihan sent Genshaft an e-mail Wednesday that requested she allow patrons of Beef ‘O’ Brady’s to buy beer and wine during lunch and afternoon hours.
Callihan wrote that he also started a Facebook petition group protesting Genshaft’s move last week, which has about 1,860 members.
USF spokesman Michael Hoad said Genshaft is unlikely to reconsider her decision, and that the Facebook group might not sway the President, either.
“I don’t think that’s going to have much difference in a drug-and-alcohol-free workplace policy,” he said.
Just two weeks after the long-awaited sports bar opened in the new Marshall Student Center, Genshaft restricted alcohol sales to after 6 p.m. to enforce the University policy that prohibits working or attending class under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
Hoad said the University overlooked this detail when planning the center.

Coach Brian Gregory said Tuesday the Bulls didn’t play complete, 40-minute games in their two losses last week. It’s debatable if they did Wednesday night against East Carolina (11-18, 5-11) at the Yuengling Center, but it was more than enough to put up a 73-68 overtime win. “It’s funny. There were stretches where we played […]
